BROCCOLI KOFTA

Finally I have made this gravy, and the reason behind this is my sweet angel. whenever I ask her what she wants for dinner immediately she will tell kofta and chapathi.She has been saying this for atleast 3 months ,becoz once we both were  seeing Raks kitchen, where she has posted cauliflower kofta's with lovely stepwise pictures , I said my daughter we will prepare this, so from that day it started -what is for dinner - Kofta and Chapathi.


Herecomes the recipe,  first let me start with kofta's and then to the gravy 

Broccoli Koftas

For the Kofta's you need

2 medium sized broccoli
3 potatoes
1/2 tsp. of turmeric powder
1/2 tsp. of chilli powder
1/2 tsp. of chat masala
2 tbsp. of corn flour
1/2 tsp. of garam masala powder
Salt
Oil
Preparation

Pressure cook the potatoes, peel the skin and smash it.

Clean the broccoli and grate it.

Heat oil in a pan, add the grated broccoli, along with the garam masala powder, chat masala powder,turmeric powder,chilli powder and saute it for about 5 mins in low flame.

Add the cooked potatoes, along with corn flour and salt. Mix them well.

Heat oil in a pan, Make small balls of it and deep fry them until they turn golden brown. Drain them in kitchen towel to drain excess oil from it.

Crispy delicious broccoli kofta's are ready.

Now lets start with gravy
For Gravy

2 onions
3 tomatoes
Bay leaf
1 tsp. of cumin seed
1 tsp. of ginger garlic paste
1/2 tsp. of turmeric powder
1 tsp. of coriander powder
1/2 tsp. of garam masala powder
1 tsp. of chilli powder
Salt
Preparation

Chop the onions finely.

Chop the tomatoes and grind them in a blender to a smooth puree.

Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds,crush and add the bay leaf, saute for a min.

Add onions and saute until they turn translucent.

Add the ginger-garlic paste and saute until the raw smell extracts from it.

Now add the tomato puree along with the powders and mix it gently, keep stirring till the gravy thickens and the raw smell of the powder goes off.

Add sufficient water , along with salt and allow it to boil.

Finally add the fried koftas and garnish with coriander leaves...

Delicious Broccoli Kofta's are ready to be served.................


Serve it hot with chapathi's and enjoy ................................:)

Note:

Add these Kofta's while serving.
For Low fat/healthier version you can use paniyaram pans instead of deep frying.
You can also add fresh cream, at the final stage for more richer taste.
